Forum: democracy_now Subject: Awfully slow downloads

I'm in Ireland. We can get Demorcracynow on WRN satellite for and hour each day. Don't always make it and tried downloading audio file. 45 mins to over 1 hour for 27 MB file. Download speed in the range 7 kBS to 10 kBs. This is not practical for me. Is there anyway around this? I have 1 meg connection. Just the audio file
thanks

Just adding to my post above and have now dowloaded one of the files in about 7 mins at speeds of around 54KBs and 2nd file was even fsster above 70KBs. The interesting thing for me( I'm just learning this stuff) is that my ping times are the same, around 200mms, as when I was getting speeds of 7KBs. Does this indicate a server bottle-neck?
tnx

download speed have been real slow for me too. from my understanding, the Archives bandwidth is just about maxed with all the heavy traffic the past couple of months. dont know if this has to do with their "consolidation" over the past month or so too.
i have just been running under the philosophy of "patience is a virtue."
